Press release, January 15; Rodney Chan, DIGITIMES

Acer America has introduced two new notebook PC platforms - TravelMate 6593 and TravelMate 6493 - designed for the mobile professional. The new TravelMate notebook series are available now in the US commercial channel.

The TravelMate 6593 and TravelMate 6493 are equipped with Intel Centrino 2 with vPro technology and utilize the Intel integrated 3D graphics media accelerator X4500MHD for graphic performance and video processing.

Both the 14.1-inch TravelMate 6493 and the 15.4-inch TravelMate 6593 offer WXGA high-brightness TFT LCD panels with 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, supporting simultaneous multi-window viewing via Acer GridVista, a business tool to accommodate up to eight display windows on one screen at once.

The notebook series integrates the Acer MediaBay hot-swappable solution that offers a choice of an extra hard disk, a second battery or an optical drive with either a DVD-Super Multi double-layer drive or DVD/CD-RW combo. The TravelMate 6593 and TravelMate 6493 can rely on up to 4 GB of DDR3 800/1033 MHz memory.

For videoconference needs, the notebooks come with Acer Video Conference solution-including the Acer Crystal Eye webcam and Acer Video Conference Manager software. Added security features include Acer Bio-Protection digital imprint reading solution and Acer FingerLaunch, which offers a secure way to launch programs or authenticated documents.

For added expansion, the TravelMate 6593 and TravelMate 6493 notebook PCs can be incorporated with Acer ezDock II and ezDock II+ docking stations. The one-size-fits-all commercial docking stations are designed to support all TravelMate form factors and models. The commercial docking stations feature a plug-n-play solution allowing connection of multiple devices in one operation and the ability to dock TravelMate notebooks without having to reboot.
